Seaside Heights

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY — In 2015 I traveled to New Jersey for my 20th high school reunion. As part of my trip I visited some of the local sights, including the boardwalk in Seaside Heights.

The Moon

TALLMADGE, OHIO — My oldest child has a really cool barrel telescope that can connect to a DSLR camera. I had to try it. Here’s a picture of the Moon from late June of 2013.

Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In early August 2008 I traveled to Washington, D.C. for business. After landing at Dulles and driving the rental to the hotel, I was able to find some time to visit the National Mall.

Boston from the 16th Floor

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS — I went into Boston to accompany an associate to a business meeting in a prominent downtown office building. I knew I wanted to take a picture as soon as I walked into the meeting room. I was presented with a view from a vantage point I wasn’t likely to get to see…

Somewhere in Rhode Island

TIVERTON, RHODE ISLAND — In early July 2008, I went with a friend to a birthday party in Rhode Island. While lingering around the back with the other party people, I took some pictures of the flowers and little statues in the yard.

Lizzie Borden

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — I lived in Fall River, Massachusetts for about six and-a-half years. It took me about five of them to realize that Lizzie Borden‘s family home was essentially just down the street from my residence. I visited on August 16, 2007 and took some pictures of the bedrooms where the grisly murders…

American Robin

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — A colorful bird was hopping around in my yard on a Spring day back in 2008. I took a series of pictures of this American Robin with a telephoto lens. It’s always so easy to spook a bird when you’re so close and trying to take a picture.

Ant and Water

MASSACHUSETTS — I’m not sure where this ant was headed. I was taking pictures as I followed him along his path up and around some of petals of this flower and this is where he ended up. I like the water droplets and the larger pool near the center of the flower. I must have…

Some Random Flowers

MASSACHUSETTS — I had driven someone to a meeting they were having at some building in a smaller Massachusetts city (I don’t remember where). While sitting in the car, waiting for him to finish up with his business, I found myself somewhat transfixed with their landscaped flowers. The next time he had a meeting in…

Hard Working Ant

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — On a few occasions in July 2007 I was having fun taking pictures of tiny things in my yard. On this particular occasion I found a busy ant that didn’t seem to mind me following him around. I’m not sure what he was dragging, but I really like how this guy…

My First Fireworks

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — On a Saturday in July of 2007 I went down to the Taunton River in Fall River, Massachusetts to take pictures of the city’s annual Independence Day fireworks display. The Fall River side of the river features a maritime museum area referred to as Battleship Cove. There are a number of…
